Popeye bodybuilder faces off against ‘Russian Hulk’ after humiliating MMA defeat

Notorious bodybuilder Popeye has been used as target practice by a fighter dubbed the Russian Hulk – just days after his humiliating MMA debut.

Kiril Tereshin, 23, known as Popeye because of his swollen biceps, flinched as Tamaev Asxab kicked a bottle off his head for an online challenge.

Asxab – who made his MMA debut earlier this year aged just 17 – faces off against Kiril in the footage and knocks the bottle away with a brutal reverse kick.

Popeye captioned the video: “I met Tamaev Asxab and I decided to check if he could knock a bottle off my head.”

Asxab, now 18, boasts a bulging 20in neckline along with huge biceps and is set for the UFC.

He is known on social media for his crazy workouts, and he showed his dexterity with the flying kick against Popeye.

Last month, the Russian showed none of the cartoon character’s strength as he was beaten by blogger Oleg Mongol in just three minutes.

Kiril also faced embarrassment earlier this year when he was beaten by Russian slapping champion Vasiliy “The Dumpling” Kamotskiy.

Popeye was sent crashing to the ground by The Dumpling.

Kiril has swollen biceps as a result of injecting highly dangerous substance synthol, used by body builders to give a temporary enlarged effect for competition.

There are concerns now over Tereshin’s healthm, with doctors warning he may end up having his arms amputated.

The injections reportedly cause tissue fibrosis, followed by necrosis, and seriously affect a person’s health.

He admitted he may go to the UK for treatment.

Kiril said: “At the moment, my arms are in a bad state and are reddening.

“I have launched a fundraiser to see a doctor in Europe for treatment that costs around 3 million RUB (£37,760).

“I would love to go the UK for it, but the most important thing is that the treatment is successful.”
